Travers Still Goal for Dominus

Dominus was doing well the morning after his third-place finish as the favorite in the Jim Dandy and remains on course for a possible start in the Travers on August 27, his connections said Sunday morning.

 

“He came out of the race fine,” said Darren Fleming, assistant to trainer Steve Asmussen. “We will see how he is and go from there.”

 

George Bolton, who owns Dominus in partnership with Stonestreet Stables and Spendthrift Farm, added that he was disappointed the colt came up short but admitted there are bigger targets on the horizon.

 

“He ran hard and it looked like he just got a bit tired,” said Bolton. “This was his first time around two turns, so that was not unexpected. We had to have this two-turn race sometime for him.”

 

Bolton said the Travers will likely be Dominus’ next start.

 

“I would think we would still look at the Travers as that was the goal the whole time,” said Bolton. “I’m sure Steve will see how he is doing and go from there.”

 

Bolton revealed that Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert will soon send The Factor to Saratoga to train in preparation for a likely start in the Foxwoods King’s Bishop on Travers Day.

 

Owned by Bolton and Fog City Stable, The Factor is unraced since finishing seventh in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park in April. Previously, he won the Grade 2 San Vicente at Santa Anita in February and the Grade 2 Rebel at Oaklawn in March.
